Tapping into the Buddha Mind to Find Peace in Today’s Insane World
…Wednesday February 22nd at 7 pm in the Garden Room

We are moving through times that seem insane and many of us are experiencing thoughts and feelings of fear, doubt, confusion, helplessness and anger as we contemplate the future of our country. Finding sanity, peace of mind and heart in such trying times is challenging. How do we do it? We find it within. As Co-Creators with God, wisdom and understanding is a natural part of who we are. The change we all long to see can only flow from each of us. This free, Spiritual Journeys class, led by David Robertson, Ph.D., transpersonal therapist, will be sharing ways to tap into the gold mine of peace that lies within each of us.
